Biogas - Clean Energy

Safeguarding the Future

Mission statement

Renewable energies contribute significantly to the energy supply of the future, for more
climate protection, more security of supply and the preservation of our earth's resources.

Zukunft sichern

In order to challenge climate change and to make energy
supply safe and clean beyond our generation, water, wind
and biomass are becoming more and more important for
the production of energy.

It is the daily challenge for ourselves to leave behind a healthy
environment beyond our generation and to safeguard the
future for the farming business. For a common cause.

Formation of Biogas

Biogas develops under the exclusion of air during the decomposition of organic matter in
a fermenter.


The fermenter, an airtight, heated tank for the anaerobic
decomposition of organic matter, may be referred to as
the core component of every biogas plant.

In well-functioning fermenters, many quadrillion bacteria
break down the easily degradable organic components
of the input material, also known as substrate, and
release the desired biogas.


Conversion of Biogas into Power and Heat

The biogas is burned in a combined heat and power plant. A combined heat and power (CHP)
plant is a modular facility for generating both electrical power and heat.


In the best case, the CHP plant is operated at the same place
where the heat is used and/or where useable heat is fed into
a district heating network.

Part of the thermal energy goes to the fermenter, whereas
the bigger share can be used to heat nearby buildings or
can be sold to third parties.
